Vinyl Tiles Vs Vinyl Sheet – Which One Is Better

by Sarah B. Marketing Writer | Thinker | Environmentalist

Vinyl has been a popular flooring material, using which people around the world create stone- and wood-look flooring. The reason behind its massive popularity is – its low cost. According to professional tile placers and interior design experts, it costs somewhere around $ 3 to $ 7 per square feet to finish a luxury vinyl flooring.

The Types Of Vinyl –

When you research, you find that vinyl is available in two options – tiles and sheet.  Both are same material, meaning, both have same characteristics and advantages. However, they are quite different in terms of use, installation, and technical aspects.

We discuss some of the differences between vinyl tiles and vinyl sheet under the following subsections –

The Cost –

The cost is probably the most attractive feature of vinyl. The cost of installing sheet flooring averages between $3 and $5. That makes it the cheapest option available.

Per square feet installation cost for vinyl tiles will depend largely on the cost or quality of the vinyl tile. Some vinyl may be priced under $2 per square feet, while on the higher side the cost may go up to $35 per square feet.

Installation Requirements –

For both type of flooring, you will need to ensure that the subfloor and underlayment are strong and perfectly even. Above all, you should also ascertain that the underlayment you are using suits the environment (of the room) where you are going to install it.

Additionally, both the materials can be installed on existing floor surface. But for that, the floor must be perfect level and in good condition.

Comfort of Walking –

Vinyl floors are a comfortable to walk on. You will not feel that comfort while walking on any other surface such as natural stone flooring and porcelain flooring.

Easy to Install –

Vinyl tiles are easier to install. You can cut and fit the tiles right as per your requirement. You can do it yourself as well.

But sheets require careful handling, as one wrong cut and your floor fails at your expectations in terms of appearance. So, this is not a DIY project. You should hire a professional to get vinyl sheet installed.

So to conclude, you now know that vinyl tiles are easier to work with. And if you are looking to buy vinyl tiles for your project, consider, one of the largest tile shops in US.
